Abstract

This paper presents evidence obtained from a survey of 182 high school students. The evidence shows that, younger students in age range of 14 -16 years are more positive than the other year cohorts towards household work and towards the teaching of Home Economics in schools. Results also show that all respondents of both sexes have a lot of interest in cooking and baking because they said they use the end products immediately after. Home Economics was ranked fourth in order of importance behind Maths, Science and English by all age groups. There is also evidence that after exposure to Home Economics courses, youths are more positive towards household chores.
